CASE Study...Embrace the White

Welcome to CASE Study and our second week with CAS master Amber Kemp-Gerstel! I have to admit that her cards are making me think a bit...I don't have all that much practice with embracing the wide open spaces. So I shifted gears and decided to embrace the WHITE spaces, albeit still cluttered, but at this point monotone...(with a delish splash of color). Take a look here:

I wanted to keep the color scheme of pink and yellow while maintaining the integrety of the mostly white. So I loaded this tag up with white accents. There are White Opal Liquid pearls, embossing with a Sizzix Corner Ornate #2 EF, white lace butterflies, a doily, some crocheted ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel, white satin ribbon interwoven into the crochet, a Quinn Flourish die, tulle accents and white organdy ribbon. Atop all that white, I added two vibrant flowers, one yellow, one pink. I kept the 'Happy Birthday' theme, sentiment is courtesy of Verve's Happy Birthday to You Plain Jane.

Here is Amber's darling CAS ensemble:

Want to see how the other CASE Study design team members were inspired?

Here are the deets:
1. Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (being a featured creation, made by our Muse).
2. Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code CSC124), and link it to the CASE Study blog with the inlinkz widget. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
3. A new challenge is being posted every Thursday at 12.01 AM EST, and you've got until midnight on Tuesday to submit your entry.
4. You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project.
5. We will choose authors of the four most impressive creations, who will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards. In addition, there might be a person chosen randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor - if there is one.
We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
6. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!
